    I saw this in the Goodreads Choice Award nominations for Best Poetry and thought I'd check it out! It's a super quick read - thirty minutes max. - but it's pretty hard-hitting without being cheesy. That's the one reason I can never get into "motivational" reads: it's almost always s...

    3.5 Stars Netgalley provided me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review I'm a simple woman: I see anything by Jason Reynolds, I pounce on it. This is a poem/letter for "dreamers" in the world. It's as much of testament of Reynolds' trials and errors as much as i...

    4 stars Jason Reynolds is an author I've been meaning to read for a while now. Usually I am not one for poetry but I've been trying to set aside my prejudices of it lately. Reynolds delivers a powerful letter, one that speaks to all kinds of readers. I really enjoyed this smal...

    A quick read of an inspirational poem aimed at younger readers, exhorting them to dream, to have courage, and to take action. The words, while not groundbreaking, are heartfelt, and I would have liked to have read the sentiments when I was much younger and wondering what direction I s...

    this was......underwhelming. and i feel bad saying that because he has a bit at the end directed towards those who didn't like his book/letter/poem (lol) but it was very surface-level, empty rhetoric about dreams and how you shouldn't give up. it feels like literally anyone could have ...

    Comforting and inspirational! ...

    Beautiful. Everyone would benefit from reading this letter/poem of dreaming and jumping and persisting and accepting. "Your dream is the mole behind your ear, that chip in your front tooth, your freckles. It's the thing that makes you special, but not the thing that makes ...

    3.5 stars! I don't usually read this kind of books, but it was not bad at all. I enjoyed it. ...

    This book was more of a short, quick read for me. Yet it was a fast read it was also a little hard to understand at times only because there wasn't much of a story to it. In which there wasn't a lot to the book. It was inspirational because it was almost like a book filled with small n...

    A letter to himself. A letter to the dreamers. Jason Reynolds setting words on fire...per usual. ...

    This would be the kind of book you gift young people graduating. The takeaway of ~take the leap~ is one I think coming from someone like Reynolds really works well. The design of the book is also super appealing, and I can see readers coming back to this one again and again. ...

    Jason flipping Reynolds! ...

    Never give up on your dreams. I highly recommend as read by the author, it's an incredibly powerful yet short listen. ...

    I read Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds this year and absolutely loved it. I'm not a fan of self help books. But this was nominated for best poetry in the in the Goodreads Choice Awards and I wanted to read more of Jason Reynolds. There's something very magical about the way he w...

    When life gives you lemons, read Jason Reynolds. Lord, this man! This poetic letter to every one is for everyone. The dreamers. The doubters. The hijacked. The prospered. Those afraid. Those with courage. The jumpers. Whichever you are...JUMP. ...

    I want to curl up in these words, share them, and live them. ...

    read this and more reviews on Frayed Books: http://frayedbooks.wordpress.com For Every One is just that ? for everyone. I listened to the audiobook, which is read by Jason himself, and I highly recommend it. It?s only about 30 minutes long so it?s a quick read or listen ? b...

    I was able to fly through this in under an hour, but I still found it extremely meaningful. What could have easily become a cheesy reach for the stars & chase your dream ? message was actually something quite deeper. It is a nice, calming read that stuck with me. It is structure...

    A short, yet powerful read to never give up on your dreams! Jason Reynolds has a way with words. This book will make you realize that on the road less traveled, you're not alone. On the dreams you feel as though have passed you by, really haven't. No matter the fear, the obstacle etc, ...

    Jason Reynolds has become a new favorite author of mine, but this one is kind of a disappointment. However, it has to do more with the fact that I rarely love poetry (unless it's telling a story or unless it's spoken word), so I would still recommend it to people. That, and it just fel...

    Jason Reynolds continues to amaze me. ...

    This was the right book at the right time for me. I think every time I pick it up, it will be the right time. ...

    This would be the kind of book you gift young people graduating. The takeaway of ~take the leap~ is one I think coming from someone like Reynolds really works well. The design of the book is also super appealing, and I can see readers coming back to this one again and again. ...

    Jason flipping Reynolds! ...

    Never give up on your dreams. I highly recommend as read by the author, it's an incredibly powerful yet short listen. ...

    I read Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds this year and absolutely loved it. I'm not a fan of self help books. But this was nominated for best poetry in the in the Goodreads Choice Awards and I wanted to read more of Jason Reynolds. There's something very magical about the way he w...

    When life gives you lemons, read Jason Reynolds. Lord, this man! This poetic letter to every one is for everyone. The dreamers. The doubters. The hijacked. The prospered. Those afraid. Those with courage. The jumpers. Whichever you are...JUMP. ...

    I want to curl up in these words, share them, and live them. ...

    read this and more reviews on Frayed Books: http://frayedbooks.wordpress.com For Every One is just that ? for everyone. I listened to the audiobook, which is read by Jason himself, and I highly recommend it. It?s only about 30 minutes long so it?s a quick read or listen ? b...

    I was able to fly through this in under an hour, but I still found it extremely meaningful. What could have easily become a cheesy reach for the stars & chase your dream ? message was actually something quite deeper. It is a nice, calming read that stuck with me. It is structure...

    A short, yet powerful read to never give up on your dreams! Jason Reynolds has a way with words. This book will make you realize that on the road less traveled, you're not alone. On the dreams you feel as though have passed you by, really haven't. No matter the fear, the obstacle etc, ...

    Jason Reynolds has become a new favorite author of mine, but this one is kind of a disappointment. However, it has to do more with the fact that I rarely love poetry (unless it's telling a story or unless it's spoken word), so I would still recommend it to people. That, and it just fel...

    Jason Reynolds continues to amaze me. ...

    A short, yet powerful read to never give up on your dreams! Jason Reynolds has a way with words. This book will make you realize that on the road less traveled, you're not alone. On the dreams you feel as though have passed you by, really haven't. No matter the fear, the obstacle etc, ...

    Jason Reynolds has become a new favorite author of mine, but this one is kind of a disappointment. However, it has to do more with the fact that I rarely love poetry (unless it's telling a story or unless it's spoken word), so I would still recommend it to people. That, and it just fel...
